After the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan directed educational institutions to come up with a solution for ending co-education in Afghanistan, some private universities and institutes have separated the boys and girls with a curtain in classrooms.
The Taliban had said that classes at all levels should not be based on co-education and the lecturers should also be assigned based on gender.
Based on the direction of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the institutions that cannot afford or assign female lecturers for female students should assign male ones who are virtuous and elderly.
Setting curtains inside classrooms-to segregate girls and boys- was another alternative after the owners of some private institutions said that they cannot arrange separate classes for 5 to 10 female students.
Since universities, institutes, and secondary and high schools are not yet opened, students have not articulated whether the new system will cause trouble to their educational process.
In Afghanistan, classrooms in all levels of schools are separated but private and governmental universities, institutes, and other short courses are being operated based on co-education.
the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has been saying that women can seek education and can work but they have to observe Islamic hijab-wear abaya- and should be separated from male colleagues and classmates.
